In this episode, I chat with Phumulani Ntuli about his artistic practice. This is the 5th episode in a series on Unframed called “Artists in Isolation” which profiles South African artists during the lockdown period of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are living through unprecedented times, where we are needing to find new ways of connecting with each other and the broader art industry, of being inspired, and of creating more platforms for artists.
Ntuli is a Johannesburg-based artist who holds BTech in Visual Arts from the University of Johannesburg. In 2017, he completed a Master in Fine Art – in the Public Sphere in Switzerland. Ntuli’s work merges the ambit of artistic research, sculpture, video installations and performative practices, concerning the tensions between documentary and the archive, and fiction and imagined narratives.
